Things that warm my heart

I was in Alameda today, driving through the parking lot of South Shore Center, an overgrown but otherwise standard-issue strip mall. As I was driving around the construction zone to find parking, I passed a couple walking through the lot holding hands.

They were late 20s, both tall and thin. One was muscular, with medium brown hair and chiseled features, and the other was blonde, with a sort of beach bum surfer look. They had the familiar intimacy of people who have been together happily for quite a while.

Did I mention that they were both men? I wanted to roll down the window and give them a thumbs-up, but instead I just smiled at them later when I passed them in the produce section of Trader Joe's.
